Wrex is a loyal collaborator aboard the Normandy in the Mass Effect Legendary Edition. Every time you visit him during your adventure, you can learn more about him and his past, gain his trust and feel like a welcome member of the crew. One of his loyalty missions for the game is to find his Family Armor, which he lost during the Krogan Rebellions. You have a chance to get him back, gain his trust and gain his loyalty for the rest of the game.
We strongly recommend that you take Wrex to your team when attempting this mission.
How to get the Wrex Family Armor quest
There are two ways to get his search for your diary. The first method is to constantly talk to Wrex about Normandy and learn more about its history. Finally, he describes how his father betrayed him at a sacred gathering place and tried to kill him. Finally, he describes how he lost his armor, on Tuntau, held by Tonn Actus.
Alternatively, you can go straight to the planet and catch a person with armor. You can find them in the Argos Rho section. They will be in the Phoenix system on Tuntau.
Getting a Family Armor
When you arrive in Tuntau, you will be in your Mako and you can view the map and find the base of Actus. It should be a hidden structure on your mini-map, located south of where you originally landed.
A handful of guards will defend the entrance, but there are several others inside the building. Most guards will defend the lower floor of the facility and you will have to go through them. They are mainly friends, so apart from a few technical skills based here and there, you shouldn’t expect too many problems.
Once all the guards are clear, go to the upper floor and there should be a sniper, unless you have led them out from below. When they have dealt with them, proceed to the last room on the top floor and get all the loot inside the room. The middle safe will require easy decryption control of the manual control and there should be Wrex’s armor inside.
If Wrex is with you, he comments on the armor and Shepard can answer yes or no, but it won’t affect him much for a moment. You can then leave the building and return to Normandy. This is useful to avoid potential Paragon or Renegade control against Wrex during the Virmire mission later in the game.
